Le Minor

LE MINOR was a label created in Pont-l’Abbé, very near Quimper (Brittany, France) in 1936.

Since then, the brand has succeeded in incorporating the region's proud nautical textile heritage into its garments. First purchased in the 1980s by the Manufacture de Bonneterie Lorentaise in Guidel, near Lorient, it was taken over in 1987 by the Grammatico family from Northern France who gave the knitwear and hosiery business a new lease of life.

LE MINOR manufactured clothing for the French Navy up until 2010 (when the latter decided to use suppliers from Romania). This precious heritage makes LE MINOR the uncontested leader in nautical workwear. The quality is based on long acquired expertise and is irreproachable. 15 years ago, all the cotton and wool used in the manufacture came from northern France. Today there are no textile mills left in France and the supplies come from Germany or Belgium (cotton) and Switzerland, Austria or Italy for wool. The fabrics are dyed in South West France.

Sailor suits, Breton sweaters, beanie hats, scarves, the whole wardrobe of the Breton sailor and the National Navy continue to be designed and manufactured by LE MINOR, the best of its kind.


100% pure wool. Le Minor hats and scarves are made in Brittany in the finest nautical tradition.


Hand wash at low temperatures.


Size: child or adult.

Worship side

Breton hats and scarves Le Minor are of exceptional quality, in design and choice of materials.

Knitted in very tight stitches, they are made in Brittany in the finest nautical tradition.

How else can we face sea spray, gale force winds and stormy seas without the beanie hat and scarf from the French Navy supplier and uncontested specialist in marine sweaters for almost 75 years?

Knitted in pure new wool, these hats and scarves will give you great protection. Once tried, you will be hooked!

The perfection of the work and attention to detail, the quality of the wool, the feel and the look of the garments show great expertise.

Provided you care for it, it will last for many years: partly as the robust and simple design makes it indestructible but also very adaptable.

You will be forced to admit it gives you a super cool and fashionable look. The close-fitting version, originally with turn-up, gives girls both a “very cute” and ultra-chic style, and men a virile, swashbuckler look…

It is strangely comforting that such a simplistic design can offer so much!
